The mini-kitchen in Glade Cottage is totally functional.
My friend and new tenant moved in on October 29th just in time for Halloween.
We started with open wall space on the back side of the bathroom wall. A drainage pipe had been previously installed a dozen years ago (behind the blue chair above).
I already had a mini-fridge for the kitchen.
First we added an Ikea counter and sink.
Then my friend brought her kitchen cart with a new microwave/convection oven she had been gifted by her sister-in-law.
We added upper cabinets.
And a larger refrigerator/freezer back in the laundry area.
The tenant carefully primed and painted the lower cabinets.
After painting the base cabinets, a white enamel towel bar (also from Ikea) is hanging on the side of those cabinets. I also provided a small stainless steel shelf from Ikea that I had hoped to use somewhere. It’s now a coffee station (over the toaster oven).
Notice the induction heater burner near the window. It works well as a cooktop.
I’m sure there will be a couple more improvements upcoming. Can you guess?
What’s your “must have” in the kitchen?
